If you are going to visit this monument then late afternoon is not a good idea. The traffic in the area gets very heavy after 5 in the afternoon so best to visit this area in the morning. You can also take a train to the area as the monument can be reached with the MRT Hua Lamphong Station by tuktuk. Shops in the neighborhood of shops called Odeon. The old quarter is the source of Xiang Gong sources used engines. And spare parts from Japan early today, there are some of these stores, such as auto parts stores. Tractor spare parts stores and machine shops, metal vessels. The MRT Wat Mangkon is the closest station but it is not within walking distance.
It was nice to see the attractive arch while walking between Powell’s Books and Voodoo Donuts. However, beyond it, there was very little, and a local informed us that there was simply not much of Chinatown left these days. Nonetheless, in any case, it is an attractive arch.
The arch is a typical/traditional Chinese archway, leading to what was once a vibrant Chinese community. Notably, the gate itself is quite nice, and the stone (black granite maybe) guardian lions on either side are quite impressive. If you’re in the area, it’s worth a look. Additionally, there is a very good Chinese-Cantonese restaurant just steps from the gate, called Good Taste Restaurant. However, it is important to note that the area may not be very safe after sunset. Likewise see also the Chinatown 唐人街 as well as the King Taksin Monument and the The Royal Elephant Museum on the BTS and MRT system.
